Lattice Semiconductor Powers Up With Wdesk

January 18, 2013
Frustrating. That's how Bob Adam, Assistant Controller, summed up the SEC reporting process at Lattice Semiconductor using word processing software. Struggling with version control problems, time constraints, and multiple changes after sending to financial printers, Lattice needed a change. “We had to do something different. We just couldn’t keep doing it that way and still be successful,” says Adam. As one of the very first prospective customers to use Wdesk, the Lattice reporting team caught on quickly. Adam says Wdesk has a very flat learning curve because it’s so similar to the word processing and spreadsheet software they’d been using. “Once you get a few basics, you can learn as you go,” he said. Wdesk revolutionized Lattice’s SEC reporting process, starting with the timeline. The team used to file within 30 minutes of the filing deadline, sometimes at the very last minute. “It always seemed like a race against time,” says Adam. Now Lattice files about a week early with Wdesk. To read the full case study of how Lattice was able to power up with Wdesk, click here.
